Green Salted Watercolor Nails

Knowing that I wouldn't have time to do my nails this week (I'm wearing red nails for seven days now!) I prepared another version of my Salted Watercolor Nails. I figured this technique would look also pretty cool in green and with a gradient as a base. So I used Essie - Mint Candy Apple and Catrice - I'm Not A Greenager to create a gradient using a piece of sponge. Then I forgot to add the matte top coat which is supposed to keep the acrylic paint in place. That's why a lot of the green acrylic paint washed off with the water. The salt pattern was still visible though, so I decided to add a bit of China Glaze - Holly-Day on my tips and then finished the design with Essence - BTGN High Gloss Top Coat. I can't wait to try more color combinations once I have a bit more free time. Thank you for bearing with me! :)

  1. Love these as much as the blue ones! Nice technique - they look like something right out of nature, as if you put a slice of gemstone on your nails. ;)

  3. Oh wow, it looks really cool! Mesmerizing, almost! And it's green, which is always a big plus in my book, lol :-)

    1. Just the two colors for the gradient, nothing else!

  5. Did you wait till the matte top coat dried or do we add acrylic paint while the matte top coat is still wet?

    1. You should wait until it dried, so not to mess up the base color
